Global Award Alumni Network

Global Award Alumni Network

When you complete a Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award you instantly become an important part of The Duke of Edinburgh Alumni Community, globally over 8 million in the past 60 years!

The Alumni provides the opportunity for all past Award Holders to now reconnect and continue to access and share unique opportunities of a lifetime.

As an Award Holder, you are part of the global community spanning more than 130 countries, and providing access to opportunities to extend the lifelong learning principles of the Award programme.

JOIN TODAY and start taking advantage of the benefits including:

  • The opportunity to reconnect with the Award in Romania and overseas, as well as other Award Holders
  • Invitations to exclusive events
  • Invitations to professional networking events
  • Regular newsletters and updates
  • Adventurous Journeys and treks


Share your experience and learnings with young people embarking on their Award Journey. We can offer Award Holders a wonderful way to share their experiences and mentor (online or via email) independent Participants doing their Award via the Open Award Centre (OAC). These Participants would really welcome the feedback, advice and support of Award Holders, as they complete their Award independently. Your stories can help inspire future generations of Award Participants!


Take part in online discussions and forums via Alumni network. These social networking sites are designed to allow you to develop meaningful discussions between other Alumni members on issues that affect young people, career issues or general life issues.


We support many charities that are always keen for volunteers. We also are looking for partners to hold and run events.

Or become an Award Leader, Supervisor or Assessors, the adults that play one of the most important roles in the Award, delivering a life changing experience for young people. The support provided by these adult mentors is vital in helping a young person to successfully complete their Award and to ensure they have the best experience possible.
